need select statement

i have a table in sql 2005 with the following fields:

tblOrders: Customer, OrderStatus, Date

I need to find all orders that have been resubmitted once rejected, by Customer. For example:

Customer     OrderStatus     Date
abc group    rejected            12/12/2006
fgh inc         pending             12/13/2006
abc group   submitted           1/7/2007
fgh inc        submitted           1/7/2006
fgh inc        rejected             1/9/2006

the result here should be only:
abc group because they are the only ones that were rejected at some date in the past and then resubmitted.
fgh in would not be in this list because following their rejection they did not resubmit anything...

Try this:

SELECT * FROM tblOrders t1 WHERE OrderStatus='submitted' and exists (SELECT * FROM tblOrders t1 WHERE OrderStatus='rejected' AND t1.Customer=t2.Customer)

WHERE OrderStatus='submitted' clause is too constricting - the status could be anything, not just submitted...

shouldn't the second t1 be a t2?

Take Control of Web Hosting For Your Clients

As a web developer or IT admin, successfully managing multiple client accounts can be challenging. In this webinar we will look at the tools provided by Media Temple and Plesk to make managing your clients’ hosting easier.

 
acdagirlAuthor Commented:
but I also need to account for the timeline... your query doesn't exclude orders that were resubmitted *after* they were rejected only. It yields all customers that have at any point been rejected and/or accepted...

yes. Sorry - long day :)

And if the OrderStatus='submitted' is too restrictive, simply remove it.

SELECT * FROM tblOrders t1 WHERE EXISTS (SELECT * FROM tblOrders t2 WHERE OrderStatus='rejected' AND t1.Customer=t2.Customer)

NightmanCTOCommented:
How about this?

SELECT * FROM tblOrders t1 WHERE OrderStatus<>'rejected' AND EXISTS (SELECT * FROM tblOrders t2 WHERE OrderStatus='rejected' AND t1.Customer=t2.Customer AND t2.Date<t1.Date)
